What have been your favourite moments on the job?

In the business of photography you are shooting 2% of your time and the rest is running a business. For me its the 2%, being out on the ice with the polar bears, with nature. The rest of it is just waiting. Steve McQueen once said racing is life and everything else is just waiting around, and its like that with photography for me. 

When I'm not out on the ice, I am just counting days until I will next be back doing what I love most.
